Jewish grandmas have gotten in knock-down, drag-out fights over the final bowl of my supreme, virus-fighting chicken noodle soup.
More than one bubbe has ended up with an orthopedic shoe imprint on the back of her blouse as she tried to score just one last bowl of that magic potion.
If you have faults, defects or ailments including but not limited to rheumatism, arthritis or the occasional case of the dropsies then this soup will cure whatever it is that’s ailing you.
That recipe looks wonderful! I’ll be trying it – thank you!
It’s so good. I love to put my face over the bowl while it’s hot with the vapors. It’s one of my best recipes
Looks good! Also looks a bit time consuming for someone aching from the eye teeth to the coccyx and beyond.
I’ve been using the same chicken soup recipe for a couple of decades but I still like to try out others for new ideas. There was a time I just used chicken broth with lots of onions and garlic but now it’s more complicated. I particularly like dark greens with whole leaf spinach or swiss chard the best.
Thanks for reminding me of angel hair. I’ve actually been fixing a big mug of broth pretty regularly during this period and been wondering what pasta I could add for a little more body (usually have some onion, cabbage and garlic in it already). Duh. Forgot all about angel hair, vermicelli, even though I have a package buried in the pantry (labeled fideo). That goes in the next mug I fix.
Always have Maggi Pollo on hand but also use Minor’s soup bases.
And leaning over the pot is a chef’s perk. I wonder if Julia or Jacques, etc., have ever confessed to doing that?
I’m not sure about those fungi, tho. What if you’ve picked up a fungus instead of a virus — seems like that’d just rile the blood up (lol).
Those mushrooms give a heavy jolt of umami to the kettle, and as you know Maggi is nuclear powered in that regard. The splash of soy takes it up one more notch.
Aaaahhhh – Super-Charged CNS. Got it. Obviously just what we need in this day and time.
I don’t have some of those ingredients on hand but I’ll get around to it sometime.
